A Personal Message From Specialist Physical Therapist, Mary Goldstein …
Mary Goldstein Physical Therapist
Parents did you and your baby experience a difficult birth? Did your baby's birth include any of the following: induction of labor, forceps, vacuum, Cesarean section, lumbar puncture-spinal tap-epidural, nuchal cord wrapped or knotted, medical complications or separation from mother at birth? Has your baby been diagnosed with tongue and/or lip ties? Is your baby having difficulty with breastfeeding no matter what you try? Is your baby fussy,gassy or spits up frequently ? Does your baby hate being on his tummy, prefer to turn his head only to one side, or is beginning to get a flat spot on the back or side of his head?
It can be scary when your baby has difficulty feeding or is almost impossible to calm down. The pure exhaustion this can cause, for both baby and his parents, can diminish the joys of parenthood.
Newborns should be able to feed efficiently and calm down when held or rocked. They should be able to turn their heads to both sides and their heads should be rounded, not flat on the side or back.
If you have any concerns regarding your infants development , know that you are not alone! At Mary Goldstein Physical Therapy, we see Newborns and their parents with the above issues all of the time.

Specialty Treatment From Mary Goldstein Physical Therapy
(and how happy they are now...)
“I began seeing Mary Goldstein, PT After having minimal improvement with breastfeeding following my son Samuels lip and tongue tie release at 8 weeks. After our first session with Mary, I noticed increased movement of his tongue. I also noticed that he was beginning to tolerate Tummy Time and move his head in both directions more frequently. After our second session with Mary, I experienced complete relief from nipple pain during nursing sessions as well as increased efficiency in my son’s ability to transfer milk. Prior to these sessions our nursing sessions were upwards of an hour, painful, and often times incomplete. Now our sessions are generally a half hour or less and pain free. Most importantly my son seems satisfied!
“Mary treated both my 6-year old son and myself for tooth grinding. The relaxation and cessation of tooth grinding that my son and I experienced both during and after treatment with Mary, was far beyond other treatment approaches we had tried before. Mary is professional, knowledgeable, and thorough in her treatments”
“When I first brought my son Ben to see Mary, he was 9 months old and had not progressed in his motor skills since 7 months. He had also stopped rolling and tended to stay flat on his back, both in his crib and on the floor. He could sit when placed, but that’s about all. I was very concerned that something was seriously wrong with him. After just two sessions with Mary, Ben was able to roll in his bed and slept on his tummy for the first time. He has continued to make consistent progress in his motor development. At 12 months, he is now crawling, getting in and out of sitting, pulling to stand, and even climbing stairs! This mamma is so grateful to be chasing her kiddo around the house when just a few months ago it seemed like he would be stationary forever. He loves going to see Mary, whose bedside manner is gentle and professional. I am so grateful to Mary Goldstein, PT for what she has done for my little boy! ”
